She said such a partnership is just one example of where there is a lot of "unexplored opportunities" for the 50 American states to be able to build upon the India-US relationship on a state-to-state level and increase awareness in both countries.

Gabbard, the first Hindu lawmaker in the US Congress, said a sister-state partnership will soon be announced between Hawaii and Goa.

"In a few months, we will be announcing the sister-state partnership between my home state of Hawaii and Goa, two states that have many many similarities both in economy, agriculture and education," Gabbard said at the FICCI-IIFA Global Business Forum organised in New York on Friday in partnership with the Asia Society Policy Institute.

The day-long business forum, with the theme 'India and the United States: Partners in Progress' was held on the sidelines of the IIFA Awards 2017 that will be held in the city on Saturday.
